Signs in the heavens: This Sunday we will be able to see Uranus.



Reminds me of an ancient Irish quatrain, discovered on a pauper's tombstone, excavated next to a lonely hermit chapel near Dingle, Co. Kerry:

Deireadh Fómhair* dark o'night,
waked from compline to lauds, 
Uranus shineth bright,
aye, the whole world be in blight.

*Harvest-end/October
